15 city public libraries provided the website Quartz the recent circulation rankings and it looks like Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee and The Girl On The Train  are the most popular books to be checked out:

The time period for the checkout lists varied by library, but all were each library’s most recent figures. Some libraries provided Quartz with lists for July, others for August, and some provided lists that spanned multiple recent months. Because Go Set a Watchman was released on July 15, its popularity could be underrepresented by some libraries’ lists.

Watchman was popular enough to be a top 10 most popular book at nine of the libraries. The Girl on the Train was checked out enough to make 11 top 10 lists.”
